America's Longest-Running Rodeo

Originally started in 1929 by the Harris family, Cowtown Rodeo in rural Salem County was suspended during World War II and resumed operations in 1955. Today, there’s rodeo action every Saturday night May through September, making it the longest-running regular Saturday-night rodeo in the United States.
 
Cowtown Rodeo is a stop on the professional circuit and draws competitors from across the country. It is one of only two ongoing weekly sanctioned rodeos in America.

 
Cowtown Rodeo features seven standard rodeo events:
·  Bareback bronc riding
·  Calf roping
·  Saddle bronc riding
·  Steer wrestling
·  Brahma bull riding
·  Team roping
·  Girls’ barrel racing
